Schluter Shower in Downtown Lancaster PA

20150526_193317_resized JD Tile was recently contacted from a customer who was educated on using Schluter proucts in a shower remodel. Schluter is known by professional and DIY types because of all the workshops they hold each year throughout the US to educate. Because of JD Tile’s diversity, Schluter is one method he uses. Having a variety of methods to prep a shower allows him to fit the customer’s needs to get them an 100% waterproof shower before any tile is installed. Waterproofing the shower receptor is the most important process in doing tile, failures occur when contractors are not educated in this realm. JD Tile makes sure the shower is waterproofed before any tile is installed. JD Tile is about high quality, not rushing to get it done. We do it once and we do it right! This shower utilizes a kerdi line drain vs the standard 4″ drain in the center of the shower pan floor. This project also includes radiant floor heat in the bathroom floor only installed in the foot spaces. Radiant heat can be used as the main source of heat in the room if so desired. This shower includes some unique design ideas which JD Tile is known for. We brainstorm with the customer to get the best possible layout which includes the customer’s needs. Glass will be used to create a niche effect, the glass being used as the sil in this case. 20150526_193209_resized 20150501_145301

Kitchen Renovation in Northern Lebanon PA

Customer remembered JD Tile from previous work 10 years ago. He tiled a stove base and entryway previously for customer. The current job was to remove the vinyl sheeting and install tile by Crossville, Americana series from Garden State Tile in Lancaster. The dark series went on the floor and lighter color for the backsplash. These tiles are V4 or varied to 4 shades. Varied shading is very popular these days. The new tile was installed to the height of the adjoining hardwood floor in the breakfast area. The proper substrate had to be installed to achieve this. Schluter Ditra was the choice in this situation. The dishwasher and stove were unhooked and removed from the room in order to tile the flooring underneath. After the floor was finished appliance were installed. Epoxy SpectraLock grout was used on the floor for longevity. 20141007_121400 20140925_112619
